Frank Turk’s Version of Hiatus

If you announce you are going on hiatus, for crying out loud, – at least go! October 30, 2013: “The primary reason for this post is simple: I’m on hiatus.” October 18, 2013: Yes, yes: I know I’m on Hiatus.  And I know I’m bumping today’s “best of” post.  Stop. October 17, 2013: Yes, I […]

The Question Pyromaniacs Fear to Answer

Updated: 10/23/2013: None of John MacArthur’s fan boys will answer this Church edifying question which I asked publicly on June 12, 2012 . I don’t think it’s because they are scared. The reason they will not answer has nothing to do with integrity, spiritual maturity, or “being the better man” either. Why not a dialogue […]

An Example of Christian Love of the Brethren

Or not…. Here is a good example of the attitude of a sycophant when worldly ambition takes personal precedent over love to the brethren. If such a statement had been made by a cult member or any other unbeliever, I would not respond publically. However, when a professing Christian and writer of an influential blog […]

PyroManiacs: You Too Can Think Like God–But Wait! There’s More!

But turning around and seeing His disciples, He rebuked Peter and *said, “Get behind Me, Satan; for you are not setting your mind on God’s interests, but man’s.” – Mark 8:33 (NASB) In the above passage, the phrase translated setting your mind on [God’s interests] is based on the Greek word φρονέω [ phroneō ] […]

Phil Johnson Returns?

Back in June 2012, the Christian blogosphere community was…well, some groups within were….shocked to hear this announcement by Pyromaniacs founder Phil Johnson: So: (gladly, with no reluctance whatsoever) I’m officially retiring from blogging, social media, and every other activity that intrudes on things that ought to be the real priorities in the final two decades […]

Is Repentance A ‘Secondary Issue’?

I recently made a public request for Dan Phillips of the PyroManiacs blog (or what’s left of it) to respond to his position on repentance. I did so because Dan takes the position that many will be able to repent and be saved after our Lord Jesus Christ returns again. God has declared clearly before […]

The Evangelical Will Kane Moment

Carl Trueman has done it now. I’m a little disappointed. You see, Phil Johnson wrote a piece called Evangelical Exhibitionists and Carl Trueman called it Another Kane Moment. Will Kane, that is, and that is what bugs me. I’ll explain later. Granted, Phil’s post on Mark Driscoll was a decent one, yet consider this: 1) […]

Every Christian An Apologist

by Joel Taylor In matters of religion, the propagation of false, antithetical concepts seem to keep working their way back into the proverbial woodpile of Christian thought. I find it nettlesome mainly because those who are found disseminating these erroneous matters should know better, specifically, those in ministerial roles of leadership. Then again, since when […]
